Join MWT

Full Membership – $100 per year

Full Membership of MWT is extended to all Victorian playwrights with one or more writing credit as an established or emerging writer (as per the definition outlined by the Australia Council).

Writing credits may include, but are not limited to: a stage or radio play that has received a professional production; a published novel, short stories or a poetry collection; articles published in recognised newspapers, magazines or journals or on reputable websites.

If you are applying for Full Membership, please attach a brief list of writing credits with your application.

As a Full Member, you will have the opportunity to:

  • Participate in our monthly workshops, where you can meet and exchange ideas with other writers and get feedback on your works-in-progress
  • Have your scripts read and assessed through our FREE Script Assessment Service
  • Submit an unproduced play for consideration in our Annual Season
  • Submit scripts for our Short Works evenings and our annual Monologue Soiree
  • Receive Playbill, our monthly e-news bulletin, which keeps you up-to-date with MWT events, industry news, and playwriting competitions and opportunities in the local and international theatre community

Members whose plays are selected for our annual Season become MWT Resident Writers, and will be featured on this website.

Associate Membership – $60 per year

Associate Membership is extended to Victorian writers who don’t necessarily have professional writing credits, but would like to connect with other playwrights to discuss their script ideas, and develop their writing skills, in a supportive atmosphere.

Actors, directors and other theatre practitioners who would like to participate in MWT activities are also invited to join MWT as Associate Members.

Associate Members cannot submit work for development or for consideration in MWT’s annual Seasons. However, you will have the opportunity to:

  • Participate in our monthly workshops, where you can meet and exchange ideas with other writers and get feedback on your works-in-progress
  • Have your scripts read and assessed through our FREE Script Assessment Service
  • Submit an unproduced play for consideration in our Annual Season
  • Submit scripts for our Short Works evenings and our annual Monologue Soiree. Note: Associate Members have priority over non-members when submitting work for these events.
  • Receive Playbill, our monthly e-news bulletin, which keeps you up-to-date with MWT events, industry news, and playwriting competitions and opportunities in the local and international theatre community
